"In the time since the suit began, the claims and counterclaims have actually served to bolster the enterprise credibility of Linux," said 451 Group analyst Jay Lyman. After six years of battle, a federal jury on Tuesday settled the longstanding SCO Group v. Novell (Nasdaq: NOVL) case by ruling that Novell owns the rights to the Unix operating system. In 2003, the SCO Group began campaigning to get Linux users to pay it license fees, arguing that unspecified SCO intellectual property had been improperly included in Linux. SCO filed suit against Novell in 2004, claiming slander of title. Now, following the District Court of Utah's decision, the case has finally been put to rest, causing widespread jubilation at Novell and throughout the Linux community. -- More on the site...
